I have never witnessed a family member break the law however I have had several members break the law and found out about through work.  I won’t go into a lot of details but officers have contacted me after making the arrest.  It’s devastating to say the least.  They try to use my name to get them out of it, and then behave like jackasses.  The worst part is that I have to hear about it through co-workers.  The relatives don’t have the guts to tell me themselves.  I know I’ve had a screw up; haven’t we all.  It’s just that I try to live life as I was taught; admit when you make a mistake, and take what you deserve.  I’ve pressed that motto onto my kids.  I deal with it to this day.

This weekend is the marathon and I’m really afraid.  I fear failure and that is something I usually don’t tell myself is going to happen.  I’m a positive person and strive for the best.  I’ve been training but not exactly as the calendar suggests because of lack of time and dedication.  I’ve fallen twice, bruised both knees, and had other aches and pains.  I have thought about quitting, but I am not a quitter plus I already paid $100.00 to run.  So this Sunday I will run and probably do one of the hardest things I have ever had to do.  26.2 miles.   It’s kind of mind blowing when you think about it.  I do a lot of things for others, but this run is for me and me only.    I will complete this marathon before I am  50.  I will complete this marathon this weekend.
